← Can religion tell us more than science?

Grasping at intangibles is not the same as god.

I really like that achromat.

I'll probably use it.

It's always fascinating the way religion makes ultimate claims about the origin and nature of the universe, about morality and about "meaning" and when pressed for evidence, it rolls its eyes at our "literal" fixation. One cannot prove the beauty of Beethoven. That sort of thing.

Requests for evidence are gauche.

This less than subtle implication that we have no aptitude for their god because we take things so literally is obviously intellectually flimsy, but it's also an insult to our artistic potential.
